This was a blast, short enough to really get to see some exciting things but not take up the entire day. Staff was great and friendly, fun time.

It was one of the large and best steam boat cruises we have ever taken. The view along the Mississippi River was spectacular despite of a cloudy day. We learned a lot about local culture and history. The service staff was super friendly and really helpful. Lunch table was specially reserved for our party even with a nice touch of fresh flowers decorated and the food was delicious. We enjoyed music and dance during our dining. Everyone had great time. Thank you!

We had been on a river cruise in NOLA before but without the lunch option. We are glad we chose to have lunch as the food at the buffet was surprisingly delicious! The jazz band was wonderful also, playing lots of jazz and blues favorites. In spite of the close to 1000 people on this Christmas eve cruise, boarding was very smooth.

Fun tour of the river in and out of New Orleans. Great sights and interesting information provided by the tour guide. If you are on the deck, it is hard to hear the Jazz Band.

A very pleasant afternoon on board the Natchez paddle wheel boat. Interesting narrative as we enjoyed delicious regional food. Live jazz band played lively music for our enjoyment. Great way to begin our visit to New Orleans.

It had a good time on the Natchez. I booked it with the lunch and the buffet was good. It takes a little till the boat departs so I would recommend to take lunch in the first slot. When you are finished the boat departs and you can sit outside and watch the landscape.

We did the afternoon tour with no lunch, but as this is Louisiana, there was plenty of booze available! Shay and Saundra were working the bar upstairs and they were so friendly and funny. They gave great service and recommendations for restaurants and bars to try while in town. Thank you ladies, you rock!

This was an absolute blast! More fun that we were expecting! It was hot and humid, so the breeze on the boat was fabulous! The food was really good, and the cajun marys were tasty too! We enjoyed the outside decks while the first group had lunch, then they went out on the decks and we were sat in the dining room. While on the decks, the captain shared all kinds of cool facts, so he was a great tour guide. The food was a buffet of red beans and rice, jambalaya, cajun fish, andouille sausage, grilled chicken and bread. There was also a dessert that I didnt get to try, but everything was great, and you could go back for seconds if you wanted. We were sat really close to the jazz band, which was also close to the bar, so we had the best table in the house! We were in NOLA for 4 days, and this was definitely a highlight of our trip! Kids as well as adults would enjoy this adventure...we were 7 women on a girls trip and we loved it!

We did this tour as part of a bachelorette weekend in New Orleans (bride-to-be LOVES boats), and it was so nice! The boat was so unique and the lunch was AMAZING!! We couldn't stop grubbing down on the red beans and rice and the bread pudding! :)
